How To Get Free Backlink From Technorati Blog?

Getting backlinks from quality website is basic SEO 101. It is a long, expensive and time consuming task. What’s makes it more challenging is that every blogger in the world is trying to get good backlinks pointing back to their sites.

Well, if you’re having some backlink woes, you have came to the right spot. I’m going to share with you how you can get a free and high quality backlink from a page rank (PR) 8 website … for free!

Yup, you don’t have spend a dime for this. All you need is just 10 minutes of your time and you can enjoy the free backlink. Of course, assuming that you have a good content blog.

Allow me to introduce to you, the Technorati blog.

What is Technorati blog?

I prefer to describe Technorati as a blog directory. You can submit your blog URL and it helps you to syndicate it on its site.

Technorati is an Internet search engine for searching blogs. By June 2008, Technorati was indexing 112.8 million blogs and over 250 million pieces of tagged social media.[3] The name Technorati is a blend of the words technology and literati, which invokes the notion of technological intelligence or intellectualism. – Wikipedia

With a page rank scale of 8, I bet it is a no brainer to get at least one backlink from there back to your website right?

As good as it may sounds, I know there are still people who dislike it. Well, for most obvious reason is on how they actually calculate your website ranking. Okay, since we’re talking about getting a good backlink, let’s talk about the good part only, shall we?

Setting up your account and claiming ownership on Technorati

  1. The first and easiest step is to get yourself an account with Technorati. Yes it is free and it won’t cost you a dime.
  2. Next, complete your profile with all the details for others to connect to you.
  3. Once that is all set, you need to claim your blog’s ownership.
  4. Submit your blog’s RSS and select ‘Claim Ownership’.
  5. Check your email for the Technorati claim token.
  6. Place the token code on any of your active posts.

An issue that you might face when claiming website ownership

I’m not sure about the rest but personally, I experienced one devastating issue; I wasn’t able to claim ownership for my website!

So, what was the problem?

Basically, when you request for a Technorati claim, Technorati will send you an email and requesting you to place a code on your website like this:

Technorati claim email
Email from Technorati informing about the website claim.

Now, you need to place the code on your website … specifically in any of your live post and must be available via RSS.

Yes, Technorati syndicate your website using RSS feed. Remember the part where you submit your blog’s RSS to Technorati in the settings?

At times, it takes some time to get your RSS feed ‘sync’ with your posts. Therefore, I would suggest waiting for at least an hour before you proceed to verify your website ownership with Technorati.

For your info, I uses FeedBurner as my RSS and it took me about 6 hours before I finally get my site approved for my Technorati claim. Weird huh?

Go figure!

So, don’t panic if Technorati informed you that they are not able to verify your website ownership. Give it few hours or so and it should be just fine if you’re doing everything correctly.

Help! I’m not getting the free backlink from Technorati!

I know some had issues trying to get backlink from the site. The simple reason could be either you have low quality content or your blog is probably new. This means that Technorati would still need some time to syndicate your content first before anything else.

Now, read the above sentence again.

Did you read the part where I say Technorati syndicate your content using RSS?

Yes! This means that you need to make sure that your website is having a working RSS URL. You can easily sign up for a free RSS address using FeedBurner.

Now, the next step is totally up to you. You’re going to get more traffic and backlinks from Technorati if you start writing quality content. Well, it’s fair right? You won’t get free backlink if you aren’t doing anything good.

    • Hi Sumanth,

      Glad you liked it. You have to understand that link building is just one part of SEO. Having more links is always good but you have to gain them. Definitely more to come but one thing is, social engagements goes beyond link building … the way I see it.


  1. I signed up with them years ago Reginald back when I was still on blogger. I still had that blog registered with them and it’s been down for years now. I guess maybe I should register my main one and move forward with this one. Dah! Never even thought of that, I thought I had registered with my main one but just goes to show you how long it’s been.

    Thanks for the heads up and the reminder for me to go back in and check my account.

    Wish me luck.

    • Hi Suresh,

      Thank you for your comment. Technorati gives me a bit of traffic but not much. I uses it for more link juice and score instead of traffic. SEO factors I would say.
